Start a new nature club

Can’t find a local nature club for your own children? Do you want to help make nature accessible to children and families in your area? Here’s how to go about starting up your own NatureKids BC nature club.

The primary objective of all our nature clubs is to organize, promote and deliver monthly Explorer Day events in your area; outdoors whenever possible.

Our provincial office takes the administrative burden off leaders by dealing with membership management, production of promotional brochures, and posting member packs to new and renewing members. The office also manages the website with your club web page (where your Explorer Day events are listed), arranges for your liability insurance, as well as organizes province-wide initiatives for members (e.g. citizen science projects like amphibian road surveys). In addition, your club becomes part of a broader network of clubs and shares in the wisdom and support of other volunteer leaders around the province, while still maintaining its own flavour and unique personality.

The steps for becoming a leader/co-leader are simple

  • Please learn more about us by reviewing our website and publications, such as our annual report
  • Fill out a volunteer application so we can learn some more about you and your experience
  • Attend an Explorer Day if possible
  • Once we have received your application, we’ll get in touch and let you know what the next steps are
